if restaurants have to find an alternative they will to have to pay more and will raise prices to offset the extra costs. the city council will vote today whether or not to ban styrofoam food containers. if they do, san jose would be the largest city in the country to do so. styrofoam is harmful to the environment, not biodegreatable and contributes to up to 15% of the city's litter and can cause harm to animals. but it's inexpensive at many restaurants often used for to- go boxes or hot coffee cups. restaurants would be forced to use alternative packaging. the san jose silicon valley chamber of conference and california restaurant association argue that the ban would hurt businesses here and instead they want to find a way to recycle the foam. 70 california cities already ban styrofoam cups and food containers and san jose got rid of plastic bags last year. if the city council votes to move forward, this would be a phasing out process so we actually wouldn't see any changes until january of next

5:35 am
jose if they decide to move forward this would be the largest city in california to do so. 70 other cities in california currently ban the foam arguing that it pollutes waterways, is toxic to animals, is not bay i don't degradable and saturates landfills. in san jose, styrofoam makes up, up to 15% of the city's litter. if passed, businesses would be required to use alternative packaging which would be pricier. a clam shell popular with to-go orders would increase from 12 cents to about 24 cents. now, the chamber of commerce and california restaurant association both oppose the ban saying it would affect businesses and customers. shops might actually have to raise their prices to adjust. some other bay area cities that no longer allow foam food containers include san francisco, palo alto, oakland, and berkeley. so again the city council votes today. if they skied to move forward, this will be a phasing out process so we actually won't see changes until january of
